I have been itching to make an ombre chrysanthemum out of dyed coffee filters ever since I spied some paper beauties on Aunt Peaches Blog. My wonderful friend Sarah recently gave me an awesome Ikea Regolit lamp which is way too lovely to botch up with a craft mistake, so I’ve been practicing on chopped up toilet paper rolls. My “practice” flowers have turned out pretty decent and I can’t bear to toss them in the trash. I have discovered you can throw anything in a wire basket and call it decor. Some day soon I shall tackle flowerifying my lamp!
